Sorry AJ, it does not use the same belts. This tiller has a variator on the back side of the engine and a short belt, about 19" runs from the crankshaft pulley to the variator. A longer belt, about 30" runs from the variator to the "tiller drive shaft". Backup is accomplished by way of a "tire" on the variator (think Snapper drive wheel) that is pushed up against the crankshaft pulley. Although I've been told that these are standard 1/2" belts, I don't trust the source, and in watching the variator work, I have my doubts.
